Serengeti Cheetah Project, Serengeti

The Wildlife Conservation Society established The Serengeti Cheetah Project over 30 years.

The project monitors changes in birth and survival rates of cheetahs, which means the team is able to make predictions about cheetah numbers in other parts of their range. The study area currently covers 220 km2 in the southern corner of the Serengeti National Park. With approximately 210 cheetahs in the ecosystem, this research provides invaluable insight into the challenges facing cheetah and aims to help make conservation of these wild cats easier.

When staying with Asilia you can directly help the project just by taking a picture of any cheetah you come across. The pictures will help to keep track of the cheetah’s in the Serengeti and to monitor their populations and movements– you can email your pictures straight to the project using this email address:

Our Philosophy

Asilia operates in some of the most spectacular wild places in Africa.  Yet they are fragile, under immense pressure, where the needs of both people and wildlife are often juxtaposed.

Empowering both people and places is essential if the habitats, upon which we all depend, are to survive.

We’ve selected a number of reputable and effective local partners as the drivers of these interventions.   These partners tackle the issues of education, community upliftment and wildlife conservation in meaningful ways, getting to the source of the problems rather than treating the symptoms.
